It is important that you follow the guidelines stated here as they are the basis for the possibility of being admitted to the program. The program council does not give reasons for unaccepted lecture proposals.

In order for your lecture to be accepted, there are certain basic criteria that must be met. Your presentation must be:

Vitalis does not accept proposals that present well established facts, nor proposals that present observations or experiences that aren’t validated yet due to, for example, the non-implementation of a system.

Be relevant
Think through who the lecture is relevant to. If you conclude that it is relevant for everyone, then you need to rethink and formulate the content for a more specific target group and with a more specific knowledge goal. A lecture proposal that is too generally described will not be accepted to the program.

Presentations are to be educational and informative in nature and should not be utilized as a marketing tool for commercial products.

One or several commercial products or partners are often involved in a successful case. Your presentation should reflect what your goal was and how it was or wasn’t achieved. If someone in the audience is interested in what product/s has been used for your study they can ask such questions after your lecture.

Industry representants are also welcome to submit proposals for presentations. It is important then that the content is of the type general knowledge content and that references are not made to own products and solutions.
Commercial presentations can be carried out as part of a partner program with Vitalis. There are also an exhibition at Vitalis where commercial messages are welcomed.

All lectures must be pre-recorded. When you submit your lecture proposal, you can state whether you want to contribute with a pre-recorded lecture only if you also want to get an invitation to a live presentation.

Note that there are different time rules for pre-recorded compared to live presentations. The reason for this is that in digital format you need to keep a slightly more compressed format and at the live stage presentation we want to give a little more space for the speaker’s audience interaction.
